Tiie Waltz . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1860

Tiie Waltz . To musics sweet measures in couples they wlrirl , Tattooing tlie floor as lliey circle and curl ; The toes of the ladies go Uppity-tip , The heels of the gentlemen rippity-rlp . All making a Babel of noise tty tkdr jumps . Like hopplty , skipptty , thump pity-thump 9 ; Coat skirts against dresses go Hlpplty-flnp , Then huggity , tuggity , rubwty-rap 1 Thus mated together , strange murmurs arise , Discordant of music , of whispers and sighs ; For masculine fingers , wilh nervous unrest , Quite close to the heart of tlie maiden are pressed . Imperial waltz ! from ( he land of the Rhine , Where music is hallowed by Templa and Shrine , In public embraces thy votaries meet , Fantastical nympth of the muse-tipping feet . To thee the swift graces of motion belong , Terpsichorenn queen of the fiddle and song , Nor bountiful bosoms and liberal hands Are ready and willing to meet thy demands . No marvel It is that conventional rules Wear off their reserve in our old-fashioned sch...

June . Thd Spring s gay promise melted Into theft , Fair Summer 1 and thy gentle reign is here I Thy emerald robes are on each leafy tree ; In the blue sky thy voice is rich and clear : And the clear brooks have songs to bless thy reign , They leap with music midst thy bright domain . Wiuss J . CL >* K . June has been styled the month , of rosea , bat thanks to the skill of the florist , these gifts of love have been extended throughout the entire year j not in profusion , for through the winter s cold , thro the frost of spring , and the Btorms of autumn , this noble flower , like the tender plants of the household , must be protected from the severity of the outside world , and carefully shrined at the fireside .

TUE APIARY . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1860

TUE APIARY . SWARMING OF BEES . The time when swarms maybe expected , depends of course , upon climate , season , and the strength of the stocks . In the Northern and Middle States , bees seldom swarm before the latter part of May ; and June may be considered as the great swarming month . In tho spring , as soon as a hive well filled with comb and bees , becomes too much crowded to accommodate its teeming population , the bees begin the necessary preparations for emigration . A number ot royal cells are commenced about the time that tho drones first make their appearance ; and by the time that the young queens arrive at maturity , the drones are always found in the greatest abundance . The first swarm is invariably led off by the old queen , unless she has previously died from accident or diseaso , in which case it is accompanied by one of the young queens , reared to sup ply her lnss . J ? ho old mother leaves soon after the royal cells arc Bcaled over , unless delayed by unfavorab...

Honey made to order—E . W . Phelps' Sectional Frame and movable Comb live . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1860

Honey made to order—E . W . Phelps Sectional Frame and movable Comb live . Mr . H . B . Gifford , of Danby , DuPage county , Illinois , has kindly sent UB two hives of the above . One a double hive containing two rooms for one swarm , and the other a single one filled with double movable frames . This last , we think , combines all the essentials of a perfect hive . It is simple , efficient and ornamental , which is saying enough . We have the Langstroth Hive , but it is not as convenient to get at the millers , and in several respects not as good as the one named above . These patent hive men talk largely about infringment oE patents , and may be there is a great deal in it , but we BUS - pect the movable frame , as generally used , has been in general use about long enough to be excused from doing duty to patent hive men . In the case of the hive sent us the frame is in sections , which is a new improvement , so BayB Mr .-Gifford ; to this is attached a moth catcher , which must b...

Swine . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1860

Swine . Since our January number , we have said nothing on the subject . In fact , there is little to say , except to new comtn among u » . In the timber districts the hogs are allowed to run at large , and the fences are made hog tight , while on the prairies where feneing maoeml » more expensive , they are confined to pastures of clover and grass , fed a small amount of corn daily . This class of farmers turn off fine porkers at an advance over tho land pikes , that roam through the woodland and prairie , running off what little fat they may gain , and thus have to . be turned into bacon , the hams of which weigh from eight to fifteen pounds . We . now hare excellent breeds among us . Perhaps it would be difficult to find better anywhere . The long , well-rounded Berkshire , the large and small Suffolk , the short waddling China and Essex , with all grades between , most of which are highly creditable to our farmers , while the land pike is nearly confined to the timber and river ...

Sweet folttots . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1860

Sweet folttots . As we intend to have this number of the FARMER out a little in advance , and as the time for planting sweet potatoes is yet in order , we make no apology for devoting a large space to this valuable esculent , which is now becoming one of the staple products of the farm and the garden . Since the introduction of the Nansemond sweet potatoe , its cultivation has been rapidly extending , and in a year or two more it will have become one of the prime necessities of the table . It is welt known that all attempts to grow the varieties usually cultivated at the South have proved failures , and that in consequence the impression has prevailed that we could not grow this plant in the Northwest . But this illusion is now dispelled , and the sweet potatoe has already taken its place among the most valued of our farm products . Aaron Vestal , of Wayne county , Indiana , was the first to call our attention to the value of the Nansemond ; and Jacob Smith , of Lockport , Will coun...

Native Evergreens . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1860

Native Evergreens . We have just completed the bedding out of some 20 , 000 native evergreens from the forest of Northern Wisconsin . They are from four to twelve inohes high and well grown j came in apparent fino order , with most of tho buds starting . They were packed in boxes with tops out aud roots in damp mois . They are partially shaded . We again repeat , that native evergreens are sent out too late ; . we should have had these a mouth since , when the cool weather and spring rains would have given them » start , but now they have to contend with our hot guns and drouth , and run too great a risk . We have done with late planting of evergreens ; that they can be successfully moved even- later than this , in wet weather , we are free to admit , but as we said before , the risk is too great to warrant the practice . Last year we lost a large share of our setting . Evergreens are too valuable to be thrown away . We will further report on the prospect of oar pets .

Maxim * . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1860

Maxim * . Never put off till to-morrow what can as well be done to-day . Our short working seasons and variable climate reader this absolutely necessary . Never occupy more land than you can cultivate thoroughly . One acre well tilled is more profitable than two acres slovenly managed . Never contract debts , with the expectation of paying for them with crops not yet grown . There are BO many liabilities to failuro , that we seldom realize what we anticipate . Never keep more stock than you can winter well ; nor less than will consume all the fodder you can raise . To sell hay or straw is unwise and unprofitable . Never expose stock of any kind to the inclemency of winter / They require at least one third more food , and are poorer in the spring ; besides it is cruel and shiftless . Never neglect getting up a year s supply of wood in the leisure of winter . It is unprofitable to cut wood in summer , when wages are double , and every hour is required on the farm . . Never spend your ...

The Illinois Farmer SPRRINGFIELD, JUNE 1, 1800 . BAILHACHE & BAKER , Publishers M . L . DUNLAP, Editor . We enter upon the threshold of summer with the most cheering prospect of success . Everywhere the farmers are jubilant with hope, -everywhere the mechanics hammer is busy , and everywhere the word progress is standing out in pleasing letters . Money is yet hard to be obtained to pay off old debts , but the phantom of hard times has ceased to operate as an incubus on our daily efforts , and every department of business is feeling the kindly influence that the genial season has infused into every department of rural labor . In the north part of the State , abundant rains have given the immense breadth of spring wheat a most luxuriant growth ; the corn and oats never gave a better stand . While Pomona has spread her mantle over them and the promise of fruit is met with no mea-sured-rejoicing . In the central put of the State , the great corn zone of the north west , a li...

Items from Exchanges . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1860

Items from Exchanges . Grapes are displayed in the -windows of Broadway fruiteries , with the notice attached , § S per pound . The probabilities are that a full oldfashioned crop of peaches will be produced in New Jersey this year . Some years ago a young man wrote to Horace Greeley , asking his advice—whether he had better become a professional man or farmer—and received this sensible and pithy reply : I judge that there are three times as many lawyers and doctors in the country as are needed , and , judging from the price of flour and beef , not half enough farmers . Of course , I judge that you could better look toward growing grain than making pills or pleas .

From Home . * A vieil to Chicago—The Grain Trade—Gardening—X / iUroad Fare—The Stage—KapervWe—Du Page Jfwieru . Having some business in Chicago , we stepped on board of the train at Cham-, paign , ( late TJrbana Station , ) and away over the broad prairies and along the lake shore to the city . There is life in such a ride , after one has been worn down by hard work and ill health . On reaching the streets the next morning and meeting the bustling masses moving hither and thither , we said to ourself , the good time is coming , the people are so busy in preparing for it that they have no time to discuss the subject of hardtimes , and it is thus becoming obsolete . We went on change to see the kings of trade and learn how fortunes are made and lost in the great agricultural Btaples of the country ; but as this will require a chapter by itself , we will pass on , simply remarking that the price of farm pror ducts is not , as many suppose , regulated wholly hy the laws of demand and su...

1 Trip to Egypt . [Newspaper Article] — Illinois Farmer — 1 June 1860

1 Trip to Egypt . The readers of the Farmer will recollect that in the last number an announcement was made of a Fair , to be held at Centralia , by the Southern Illinois Horticultural Society , May 22 nd and 23 d . In accordance with that announcement , we proceeded to Centralia , and much to our disappointment , learned that tho contemplated Pair was postponed indefinitely . Dr . Warder had been advertised to deliver the address , and we had expected to have seen the vernal flora , the embryo fruit of tho orchard , ripe strawberries , mulberries , and the early vegetables of this favored region ; but alas , none of these came to greet our vision , and we decided to take the return train for home . With Mr . S . Silver , we visited several gardens in the oity , and found the dwarf pears , the peach , the apricots , and the grape vines loaded to profusion . The strawberry season was nearly over ; green peas were . in abundance , and new potatoes will be plenty in some two weeks . Mo...
